OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — In his two seasons at Mississippi, coach Hugh Freeze has managed to build a program that's talented and capable of winning big games.
It remains to be seen if the Rebels are a program that can actually win the Southeastern Conference.
Ole Miss returns 15 starters from a team that finished with an 8-5 record last season, including nine on defense. Senior quarterback Bo Wallace comes back for his third straight season as the starter and has a chance to become the school's passing leader.
The team will also need a talented group of sophomores — led by receiver Laquon Treadwell, defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche and offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil — to improve upon their impressive freshmen seasons.
